To help make his Valentine's Day brighter, the staff shared his photos on Facebook Friday with a request that the community to send Cashew 100 Valentine's Day cards to tell him that he's loved.

Cashew is a bit scared of people, but the shelter says he really loves women and is a really good boy. He recently underwent knee surgery and has been recovering with a foster family.
